POSTPONED due to bad weather from 24/25 July to 7/8 August !!!! This trip is still open for registrations, so do sign up if you're interested to join, though signing up does not guarantee a spot and I will determine final participants based on experience levels, car availability, etc.


Anyone keen for an easy trip with lots of food, wine, music and some card games? 

Join us for an easy overnight hike in Kosciuszko national park at Gooandra Homestead. Gooandra is located about three hours’ drive from Canberra, 15km north of Kiandra. Access is an easy 5km walk along a fire trail. We might have snow up there, but it depends on the season since it is not very high. With that in mind, we will probably have to use snowshoes or skis to get in. 

Since the hike is quite short, we can afford carrying some extra weight (some good food, wine, etc). The idea is to share meals and enjoy a pleasant evening with lots of laughs, games and food. We will decide in the pre-trip meeting who will bring what: Entrees, Mains and Desserts, etc.

The trip is beginner friendly, so even if you don’t have experience snowshoeing, skiing or camping in the snow, you will be fine. We will forward the participants a list of gear and clothes to bring along for the night.  

This trip will be co-lead by Gabriel and me. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate in contacting us.

**Please note that signing up to this trip does not guarantee a spot - I will determine final participants based on experience levels, car availability, etc. I will prioritise participants who can provide cars/transport.  

**The trip will be postponed or cancelled if the weather is unfavorable (ie blizzard conditions).
